Ruskie Strategic Bomber Exercise 'Til Option Expiration DatMon Sep 17, 2007 14:49It appears our Russian partners have learned capitalism well and commencing tomorrow will conduct strategic bomber exercises right up to the above-mentioned option expiration date on 21 September. I only hope NORAD doesn't get distracted again as it did on 9/11. And what is US$900 million anyway? It is a drop in the bucket! It is not even one one thousandth (1/1,000) of a cool trillion! Not one ten thousandth (1/10,000) of our accumulated national debt! So relax and enjoy knowing what is means to "go for broke"!
Here is the current report from NOVOSTI, the Russian News & Information Agency:

MOSCOW, September 17 (RIA Novosti) - Russian strategic bombers will conduct a series of long-range training flights, with aerial refueling during the exercises, scheduled for September 18-21, an Air Force spokesman said Monday.
"During the exercise on September 18-21, Russian strategic bombers Tu-160, Tu-95 and Tu-22M3, and Il-78 aerial tankers will conduct long-duration daytime and night flights with mid-air refueling," Colonel Alexander Drobyshevsky said.
Major-General Pavel Androsov, the commander of the Russian Air Force's strategic aviation, will supervise the exercise.
Moscow announced in mid-August that routine flights by strategic bombers had been resumed, and would continue on a permanent basis, with patrol areas including commercial shipping and economic production zones.
According to various sources, the Russian Air Force currently deploys 141 Tu-22M3 bombers, 40 Tu-95MS bombers, and 14 Tu-160 planes.
